Purpose of the website and designation of parties

The current website is edited by LJC International, an SAS with a capital of 10000 €, registered with the trade and companies of Nanterre under the number 53842261900014, and whose headquarters are located at 21 rue Gardenat Lapostol, 92150 Suresnes - France. 

Intracommunity VAT number: FR07538422619. 

The website is hosted by Oxatis whose headquarters are located at 18, rue de la Butineuse, 13015 Marseille reachable by phone at the following phone number: +33(0)108201022. 

The website’s publication director and the editing director is Claudia Teixeira Ghiringhelli. 

The website is open access and free to all web users.

Entering into a contract governed by these general conditions with the publisher of this website implies the user’s acceptance of these general terms and conditions. The user recognizes the same fact by becoming fully aware of it. This acceptance will occur by placing an order on the site.

This fact shall be deemed to have the same value as a handwritten signature on the part of the user. The user recognizes the value of the proof of the website publisher’s automatic registration systems and, except when he provides evidence to the contrary, he waives the right to contest them in the case of a dispute. The acceptance of the general conditions implies on the part of the user that he has the legal capacity necessary to do this, or if not, that he has the permission of a guardian or a trustee, his legal representative if he is minor, or that he has a mandate when acting on behalf of a legal person.                                                                                   

Modality of subscription orders and purchasing process overview

In order to comply with the provisions of the Act of trust in the digital economy of 21 June 2004, the ordering process will be described hereinafter: to place an order, Internet users will be able to select one or more objects and add them to their shopping cart. When their order is complete, they will be able to access their shopping cart by clicking on the button provided for this purpose.     

By viewing their cart, members shall have the right to verify the number and the nature of the items they have chosen and will be able to check their unit price and the total price of the order. They will be able to remove one or more objects from their shopping cart. 

If they are satisfied with their order and wish to validate it, users will be able to click on the validate button. They will then have access to a form in which they can either enter their login credentials if they already have them, to register on the website by completing the form that is presented with personal information about them.

Once they are logged in or after they have fully completed the form, customers will be invited to check or modify their delivery and billing details, and then they will be invited to make payment by being redirected to the secure payment interface.

Once the payment is actually received by the site’s publisher, the latter undertakes to acknowledge receipt to the customer electronically, within a maximum period of 24 hours. Similarly and within the same timeframe, the publisher undertakes to send the customer an e-mail summary of the order and a processing confirmation. It will also contain all information relating to the order, the products ordered, delivery, as well as the procedures for exercising their right of withdrawal.

The prices indicated on the site are expressed in Euros, including tax for intra-community deliveries, excluding tax for EU deliveries, and excluding delivery costs. These prices may be changed at any time by the publisher; prices are only valid on the day of the order and do not carry effect for the future.

Delivery charges will be, in any event, indicated to the client before any payment. Products and articles sold remain the property of the seller until full payment of their price, in accordance with the ownership reserve clause.

Product availability is indicated on the website on each item’s description page.


Information related to payment

The internet user may place an order on the website, and he may make payment using a bank card or PayPal. 

Bank card payments are made using a means of secure transactions furnished by the provider: BNP PARIBAS.
As related to bank card payments, the website publisher has no access to information related to the user’s method of payment. Payment is made directly to the bank establishment.

Delivery time defined in the article below only begins on the date the payment is received by the seller, and the latter can prove it using any method. 

Delivery or provision

Orders are delivered by La Poste, TNT, or another carrier chosen by the seller. Products are delivered to the address indicated by the consumer on the order, only in the areas serviced by the seller. 

The delivery time is on average 3 days after the package departure notice. Certain products or certain order volumes may justify a delay in delivery greater than 3 working days. It will be brought to the consumer’s attention during order validation. As with all shipping, delays or lost products are possible. In such a case, the website publisher will contact the carrier to begin an investigation. Every effort will be made to find the package. In the event that the package is not delivered within 15 days after the package’s departure, an identical product may be sent or the purchaser may request a refund of his order.

We disclaim all responsibility when deliveries are delayed as a result of the carrier, in the event of product loss, weather, or a strike.



Delivery problems as a result of the carrier

Any anomaly concerning delivery (damage, a missing product compared to the delivery order, a damaged parcel, broken products...) must be indicated on the delivery note in the form of "handwritten reserves", accompanied by the customer’s signature.

At the same time, the consumer must confirm this anomaly by addressing it with the carrier within (2) two business days following the delivery date in an email, and acknowledgement of receipt exposing such claims is recommended.

The consumer must transmit a copy of this email to the SELLER’S ADDRESS. Without this statement, we will not proceed with any exchange.

In the event that the parcel is indicated as "delivered" but the customer indicates that he has not received it, he must contact the seller within 7 days of said delivery to initiate a refund/exchange procedure. The seller will provide the customer with documents to be completed and returned within 15 days in order to open an investigation with the carrier. After this period, the customer will no longer be entitled to a refund/exchange.

Delivery Errors

On the same day as the delivery, or no later than one business day after delivery, the consumer must make any delivery error complaint and/or non-conformity of products in kind or in quality compared to the indications mentioned on the order form to the SELLER.

Beyond this period, any claim will be rejected.

The formulation of this claim to the seller may be made to the seller's address.

Any claim not performed within the rules defined above or within the time limits will not be taken into account and shall relieve seller of any liability towards the consumer.

In case of delivery error or exchange error, any product for exchange or refund must be returned to the seller as a whole, in its original packaging in perfect condition, to the seller's address. To be accepted, any return will have to be reported and have the seller’s consent, which if agreed will re-ship the package to the correct address.

Shipping costs are borne by the seller, except in the case where it will prove that the product does not correspond to the original declaration made by the consumer on the return notice.

Provisions related to consumer’s rights

The website’s customer service is accessible from Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM at the following non-premium rate telephone number: + 33 (0) 1 41 38 26 62, or by email at the following address contact@lesjardinsdelacomtesse.com, or by mail at the following address: LJCInternational, Customer Service, 21 rue Gardenat Lapostol, 92150 Suresnes - France. In the last two cases, the publisher commits to provide a response within 2 days. 

In accordance with the legislation in force, consumers have a period of 14 days from the date a package is received to request an exchange or refund. In order to exercise this right, it is their responsibility to return (at their expense) the parcel in its original packaging, to the address of the company’s headquarters: YOA International, After-sales Service, 21 rue Gardenat Lapostol, 92150 Suresnes - France, accompanied with a letter requesting either a refund or an exchange. The refund will take place as soon as possible and at the latest within 15 days following the date of the withdrawal. 
Products must be returned in their entirety, in their original, complete and intact packaging, and in a perfect state of resale. Any product that has been damaged, or whose original packaging is damaged will be neither reimbursed, nor accepted back, nor exchanged. This right of withdrawal is exerted without penalty, except for the return shipping costs. In the event a consumer exercises his right of withdrawal, he has the choice to ask for either refund of sums paid or a product exchange. In the case of an exchange, re-shipping will be at the consumer’s expense.

In accordance with the provisions of articles L121-20 and additions from the Consumer Code, you can under no circumstances exercise a right of withdrawal for the following products:

·       goods whose price depends on fluctuations in financial market rates

·       goods made according to the consumer's specifications or clearly personalized or which, because of their nature, cannot be re-shipped or are likely to deteriorate or expire rapidly

·       audio or video recordings or computer software if they are unsealed by the consumer

·       newspapers, periodicals or magazines

Any delay in delivery may lead to the resolution of the sale at the initiative of the consumer, upon written request from on his part. The consumer will then be refunded the sums paid by him when he placed the order. This clause is not intended to apply if the delay in delivery is a result of a case of force majeure, beyond the publisher’s control. In such cases, the customer agrees to not pursue legal action against the site or its publisher and renounces to avail themselves of the resolution of the sale provided for in this article.    

Guarantee for products purchased on the website

In the event a product purchased on this site is defective, customers have, in accordance with the provisions of the civil code on the legal guarantee against hidden defects, a period of two years from finding the said defect to ask for an exchange or refund of the product, and, in the application of Article L211-5 of the Consumer Code they will have a period of two years from the receipt of the said product for an exchange or a refund in the event the delivered good is not suitable, in the sense of the meaning given to that word by the aforementioned article. In order to exercise any of these rights, it is their responsibility to return the parcel to the company’s headquarters address: YOA International, After-sales Service, 21 rue Gardenat Lapostol, 92150 Suresnes - France, accompanied by a letter of explanation requesting either a refund or an exchange. The cost of sending the package, in the latter case only, will then be refunded to the customer by check or by wire transfer, within a maximum period of thirty days.   

Objects purchased on this site have a conventional guarantee offered by the seller. The duration of the guarantee is likely to vary depending on the product and will be detailed on each item’s product page. This guarantee is in addition to the guarantee against latent defects defined by the Civil Code as well as the guarantee of good compliance imposed by Article L211-5 of the Consumer Code which is, when required, still applicable and defined above. 

The consumer is specifically informed that the seller is not the manufacturer of the products presented on the site, unless information to the contrary is stated, and that the seller disclaims any liability for defective products. 

Consequently, in case damage is caused to a person or property by failure of the product, only the manufacturer’s liability may be sought by the consumer on the basis of the information contained on the packaging of said product.

The warranty period is one year (1 year). All products modified or repaired by the customer or by any entity other than the providers chosen by the seller are excluded from this guarantee. 

The guarantee may be extended according to the terms specified on the website. 

Member space

Creation of a personal space is a prerequisite for any user to place an order on this site. To this end, the member will be asked to provide certain personal information. The member commits to providing accurate information, or he may be subject to cancellation of the contract and deletion of the customer account by the publisher. Some information will be deemed essential to enter into the contract, and collecting it may be necessary to create a personal space and validate the contract. A member’s refusal to provide such information will prevent the creation of a personal space and as a result, validation of the order. 

This space allows the customer or member to view all his orders on the website, and also, where appropriate, allows him to track delivery of the purchased goods.

If the information contained in the personal space disappears as a result of unforeseeable circumstances, technical failure, or a force majeure event, the site’s publisher may not be held liable, as this information has no probative value and is for informational purposes only. However, the publisher commits to secure all contractual elements required by the act or by regulations in force.   

Personal space pages are freely printable by the account holder in question, but they do not constitute evidence. They are for informational purposes only and are intended to ensure that the customer can effectively manage orders. 

When creating the personal space, the user is prompted to choose a password. This password guarantees the confidentiality of the information contained in the 'My Account' section, and the user is therefore prohibited from transmitting or communicating it to a third party. Otherwise, the website cannot be held liable for any unauthorized access to the user's account. 

The publisher reserves the exclusive right to delete the account of any member who breaches these terms and conditions (including but not limited to a member knowingly providing false information when registering and creating his personal space) or any account that has been inactive for at least a year. This deletion is not likely to constitute damage to the excluded member, and the member will not be able to claim compensation as such. 

This exclusion does not prevent the publisher from pursuing judicial prosecution against the member when the facts justify such action.

Publisher’s Newsletter 

By checking the box provided for this purpose or by expressly agreeing to it, members agree that the publisher can provide a newsletter (informational) that may contain information related to his activity on the site, at a frequency and in a form determined by the publisher. 

When the user checks the box provided for this purpose, he agrees to receive commercial offers from the site’s publisher for products and services similar to those ordered. 

Subscribed members shall have the right to unsubscribe from the newsletter by clicking on the link provided for this purpose, which will appear in each newsletter.

Notices related to the collection of "cookies”

In order to allow all users optimal navigation on this site as well as better functioning of the different interfaces and applications, the publisher may proceed with implantation of a cookie on the user’s computer. This cookie is used to store navigation-related information (date, page, times, etc.) as well as any data entered by users during their visit (searches, login, email, password, etc.). These cookies are meant to be stored on the user’s computer for a variable period of up to 10 months and can be read and used by the publisher during a subsequent visit by the user to this site. 

The user has the ability to block, modify the retention period, or delete this cookie through his browser’s interface (usually: tools or options / privacy or confidentiality). In this case, navigation on the site will not be optimized. If systematic disabling of cookies on the user’s browser prevents him from using certain services or functions provided by the publisher, this event cannot in any way constitute damage to the member who will not be entitled to any compensation as such.  

Users also have the ability to delete cookies present on their computer, by going to the menu provided by their browser (usually, tools or options / privacy or confidentiality). Such an action will have no impact on their navigation on this site, but users lose any benefits of using cookies. In this case, they will have to re-enter all of their personal information. 

Publisher’s exemption from liability in executing this contract

In the event the site is inaccessible due to technical problems or any other type, the user or the customer will not be entitled to damages nor claim any compensation. 

In the event a package is delivered that is clearly and visibly damaged, it is the customer’s responsibility to refuse it, in order to take advantage of the guarantee offered by the carrier. The customer must also inform the seller as quickly as possible, so a new package can be prepared for him. Then the new package will be shipped as soon as the damaged package is returned. In such case, delivery periods indicated above in these terms and conditions shall no longer apply. 

The unavailability of one or more products, even over an extended period without any limitation, cannot constitute harm to users and may not give rise to awarding damages and interest from the site or its publisher.

The visual representations of products published on this site are guaranteed by the publisher as perfectly faithful to reality, in order to meet the site’s obligation of providing correct information. However, with the state of current technology, the rendering of these representations, especially in terms of color or shape, may significantly vary from one computer to another, or differ from reality according to the quality of on-screen graphics or the screen display resolution. These variations and differences may in no event be attributed to the publisher, who may not, in any case be held liable for such. 

The hypertext links on this site may send users to other internet sites, and the site publisher cannot be held liable if the content of these sites violates legislation in force. Similarly, this site’s publisher cannot be held liable if the user’s visit to one of these sites causes any harm. 

Intellectual property rights related to items published on this site

All elements comprising this site belong to the publisher and as such are protected by intellectual property legislation. 

Therefore, users recognize that, without authorization, any total or partial copy and dissemination or use of one or more of these items, even modified, will likely give rise to legal proceedings conducted against them by the publisher or its rights holders. 

This protection applies to all of the site’s text and graphics and also to its structure, name, and graphic layout.

Various clauses

These general terms and conditions are subject to the application of French law.

These general terms and conditions may be modified at any time by the site publisher or a representative. The general terms applicable to the user are those in force on the day he logs in and/or places an order on this site. The publisher obviously commits to maintain all former general terms and to send them to any user that requests them.

Except for public policy provisions, all disputes that may arise in the execution of these general terms may be subject to this site publisher’s amicable settlement
 before any legal action takes place.  Express reminder is given that any request for an amicable settlement does not set aside the deadlines fixed for instigating legal action.  

If one of the clauses of these general terms were to be declared void by a court decision, this nullification cannot cause all other clauses to be void. They would remain in effect. 

The fact for the publisher to not temporarily or permanently prevail on one or more clauses of these general terms does not in any way comprise a waiver to prevail on the rest of the general terms.
